Senior living complex planned for Brookings

Sea View Senior Living Community
Former Brookings residents Robert and Theresa Dunn will be back in town June 15 to break ground on a new senior living development, Sea View Senior Living Community, to be located at Highway 101 and Gerlach Lane in Harbor.

The Dunns, as owners of Firstmark, Inc., have been involved with 27 senior living developments throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. They are coming full circle back to Brookings, where in 1995 they built Macklyn House, their first senior living development.

Plans being designed in coordination with senior housing architect John Lape are for a 110,000 square foot building that will provide a broad range of housing options, including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, with dining rooms, beauty salon, laundry facilities, plus social and activity areas.

Anticipated employment opportunities when the facility is fully occupied is to generate  more than 60 jobs with an estimated annual payroll of $1.2 million.

Robert Dunn said, “Of course we look forward to teaming up with Chetco Federal Credit Union, as they will be providing the project funding.”

He added, “We look forward to bringing this state of the art community to Brookings-Harbor. We believe Sea View Senior Living will be a wonderful opportunity to enhance the lives of Southern Oregon seniors and help stimulate the local Curry County economy.”

More details about the project will be made available following the groundbreaking next Monday.

  • China stock exchanges step up crackdown on short-selling
    SHANGHAI/HONG KONG (Reuters) - China stepped up its crackdown on short-selling of shares on Tuesday, unveiling rules that make it harder for speculators to profit from hourly price changes, as some of the nation's major brokerages suspended their short-selling businesses. China's stock exchanges and market watchdogs are cracking down on short-selling as part of a broad government-orchestrated effort to prevent a collapse in the country's markets, which have lost about 30 percent of their value since peaking in June. On Tuesday, as the markets regained ground, major brokerages Citic Securities and Huatai Securities said they would temporarily halt their short-selling services.
